Installing a new boiler heating system not only helps you stay comfortable and cozy in the Cleveland area, but it can also help cut your energy bills. Beyond that, there are a few more reasons to consider installing one of these systems in your home.
Better indoor air quality – Forced-air furnaces blow air from registers in your floors and walls, which inevitably stirs up dust every time the system kicks on. Boilers use radiators to give off heat without moving the air, resulting in less dust floating around your home.
More even heating – With a forced-air system, warmth quickly rises toward your ceilings, leaving your living area chilly. Older and incorrectly sized systems are also prone to chilly drafts. A boiler heating system radiates heat into your rooms just as the sun does. This warms up your home, rather than the air, so there are no drafts.
Convenient customization – A boiler system makes it easy to heat different parts of your home independently from each other. Just turn the radiators off or down in rooms where you want less heat. Achieving this kind of zoning with ductwork requires installing duct dampers and special thermostats.
Installation of a new boiler heating system is also more convenient. Today’s boilers are small enough to be installed in walls or even cupboards. Better yet, boilers are easier, and therefore cheaper, to install than any other type of heating system.
Quiet – Although you may hear the occasional clanging pipe or pinging radiator, boiler systems are still quieter than furnaces. You won’t hear a running motor or air whistling out of air registers.
If you already have a boiler and you’re wondering whether to upgrade or switch to a different form of heating, consider modern high-efficiency boilers. For more guidance, get in touch with Geisel Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing by scheduling an appointment in the Greater Cleveland area.
